Hi,

My family and 2 others own a property down south in Northern NSW.

What we need to know is how can we set up a video camera or a webcam so that we can see what the weather is like down there from home in possibly a web browser.

We dont have any access to mains power or a fixed phone line (There is mobile coverage), but we can get a 3G Mobile phone and a solar panel or two.

Can anyone recommend a set-up for us to use out there?

Thanks in advance.

Wow, that's a tricky one! I have to admit I don't think the 3G phone and solar panel option would be very reliable. You've got me thinking, though, so I'll be sure to reply again if I think of anything.

We cant get an Internet Connection down there coz the cabling finishes down the road from us. There is the question of Satelite connection, but that is too expensive for what we want to do down there.
